Khana Khazana sits right next to Greyhouse Coffee in the heart of campus. The decor hasn't changed since inception, but the food is out of this world. I always hit the buffet with it's plethora of authentic Indian dishes. The Tandoori is a personal favorite and the Naan is out of this world. It's a low key place and the... More

Enjoyed the food when I ate here. Did not enjoy learning that the owner pockets the credit card tips left. I had multiple employees tell me this. Absurd practice to essentially steal tips from his employees and deceive customers (when I leave a tip, I NEVER expect the owner to get, but the actual servers... imagine that).

Nothing special, average food and drinks, minimum service. The room is basic, with no decoration. Dishes are all the classical buffet dishes you can find at an Indian place, quality is average. You get what you pay for...

Walk in off the street (difficult parking) and what you see is what you get. Good Indian food without the killer hot spices. You can get more spices if you ask. They are in a veritable sea of restaurants and they know what the college crowd wants. We go there with family, and the grandchildren eat an embarassment of tonnage... More

Not the best Indian Food in the area but pretty good if you're looking for something closest to the campus area. One thing that I did not like was that if someone ordered a dish and that dish was in their buffet then they would just sneak that dish from the buffet and serve it. You're paying almost the price...

The last time I attempted to eat at Khana Khazana, I was unable to. I arrived shortly after 1:00, when the West Lafayette lunch rush was over. Most of the tables in the place were empty of customers, but full of dirty dishes. I was unsure of where to sit and the boy that worked there said II could sit... More

The food is very good in taste and is very authentic Indian food. The buffet has a fairly large spread for the restaurant of this category. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. Mr Ashok will treat you as if you are a special guest at his son's marriage.

Good Indian food. We have enjoyed the buffet and the spread was good. Price is also reasonable. This is very near to the Purdue university.

Khana Kazana is my favorite Indian restaurant. The decor is nice but not stuffy and the atmosphere is relaxed but not too casual. I always get the buffet, which offers rice, naan, and eight or ten other dishes along with dessert and fruit selections. Some of the entrees are vegetarian and some are not so there's something for everyone on... More

Had lunch buffet there again recently, but have eaten there often over several years. Reliably varied and delicious. Tandoori chicken was particularly moist and tasty (often can be dry.) My wife & I love Indian cuisine, and Elkhart has a dearth of such ethnic joys. So we get our fix on visits to Purdue. In fact, the same restaurant was... More
